New Pirates Of The Caribbean Movie Gets New Screenwriter

Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer already had a script for a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film, courtesy of Terry Rossio, but it would seem tonight that they’ve thrown that one overboard and commissioned a new one.

According to Variety, Jeff Nathanson has been tapped to write the new film, presumably from scratch.

If so, this would make it the first film in the series not written Terry Rossio – or, for that matter, his sometime co-writer Ted Elliot.

Nathanson’s resume includes Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The his less worrisome credits include Tower Heist and Catch Me If You Can, but everything is relative.

We don’t know what direction Nathanson will be taking the Pirates series, or which characters he’ll bring back but I think you can be pretty confident Johnny Depp will reprise the role of Captain Jack Sparrow. That, for Disney and large parts of the audience too, I’d expect, is pretty much the point of these films.
